(b) Just because one sees an object does not mean that the object exists. (c) The experiences of a given person are necessarily private to that person. The basic form of the argument: "Jiva is called so because he sees the world. See also[edit]

Seven Speaking Tips That Beat “Pretend Your Audience Is Naked" Aggh. Everyone showed up clothed! Once upon a time, I suffered from glossophobia. This affliction touches billions. I conquered it by discovering what makes people smile, nod, and listen carefully, because nothing calms you down faster than an interested audience. This is what I've learned.
